How many copies of G-325A for the I-130 form

Okay, I've been searching this forum for a clear answer to this.

Before, when I filed a I-129F petition I had to submit four copies of the G-325A biographic forms. Four from me and four from my fiance at the time. Since our case has been closed, we went ahead and got married while I was recently visiting her in Vietnam.

So now we're starting the CR-1 visa process. Is it different this time around? Seems like they changed to only one copy each.

So, just to be absolutely clear.

:unsure:

Is it four copies each? or is it one copy each?




thanks in kind,
Michael :)
